Murray who narrated that he was as dealing with his constant flare of emotions and show of his frustrations on the court and so he is trying to be calmer, he said;

“It was something that was brought up to me and I tried to sort of keep my emotions in check, I don’t know whether that affected me in any way or not, but that was probably why it was quieter than usual.”

Narrating his possible reasons for loosing the match he said ;

“I didn’t play well. I served under 40% first serves in the court, which is just not good enough against anyone, and especially someone as good as Stan. You want to be serving in the 60%, that sort of region. You won’t see many players serve under 40% the rest of the tournament.”
